Eh, already 2016!

More than a year idling.
The last entry was during Lutfiah admitted to the hospital.
Konon sambil jaga Lutfiah, sambil menulis.
Hmmmm....tapi harammm (sila cakap ikut loghat Perak)
Mama dia pun macam orang sakit.
Actually that time was 3 days after I did my pregnancy test.
Anak-anak memang jarang demam, especially Lutfiah.
Kalau demam pun, demam demam manja , paling lama dlm sehari setengah.
Dapat adik, terus demam sampai kena admit hospital.
Dahsyat betul penangannya...hahahaha...

Oklah, since in few days adik Lutfiah will turn to 8 months old.
Mama pun dah boleh bernafas skit.
Post natal syndrome pun almost no more (I think).
So let's blogging back.
Start with the one that Lutfiah admitted to the hospital.

Hari Khamis, mama taska whatsapp bagitau badan Lutfiah panas.
Petang itu balik awal, terus ke klinik but since baru lagi, doktor cuma beri ubat demam.
Dah alang2 ke klinik, mama pun gatal tangan beli pregnancy test kit.
Period belum lambat lagi tapi mana tau dah ader result ;p
Jumaat badan Lutfiah still panas, Sabtu siang macam dah turun tapi malam panas semula.
Dan pagi Ahad, Lutfiah terbaring tidak bermaya & tidak mahu makan, hanya minum air masak.
Selepas Asar, Lutfiah tidur dengan keadaan yang menggigil. Kaki & tangan sejuk.
Bila saya nak mandikan dia, dia tidak boleh berdiri kerana menggeletar.
OK, enough! Jom pergi hospital.

Memang if my kids demam more than 3 days, saya terus pergi hospital for blood test.
Saya tak suka simply bagi antibiotic.
My first son, yes, if doctor bagi antibiotic, I will follow.
Masa tu saya mcm pelik, breastfeed but still selalu demam.
Until I read one article about antibiotic, then I stopped.
Agak terlewat sebab Naufal dah setahun lebih but still boleh nampak positive impact.
Yeah, bila anak sakit mmg base on mother's instinct.
But I'm an engineer, so kena apply engineering rule - no assumption.
Plus, as working mother, I cannot monitor my kids all the time.
So the result will help me a lot to feel more relieve.
But this time, mother's instinct pun rasa something is not right.

As usual I will pack all the stuffs just in case need to admit.
The blood test result NG, her white blood reading too high.
Normal 13.2 but her one is 28.1.
With other component result (sorry, I don't understand medical term), doctor suspect bacteria infection.
I informed doctor that her urine also smelly & already one day tak poo poo. Maybe because tak makan.
Doctor asked for urine test.
As long as not get her urine, cannot proceed with antibiotic.
Oh, that's difficult part because she don't want to pee in front of us.
Until one time, dia tak tahan sangat, dia menangis, then terkencing.
Her urine test result also NG - cloudy, have blood & sign of infection.
Doctor proceed with bacteria growth test.
Until this stage, I still positive.

Doctor start with normal dose of antibiotic.
On Tuesday, got ultrasound check since her urine test result NG to check her kidney area.
Alhamdulillah, all OK.
On Wednesday, another round of blood test.
This time they took quite a lot compare to first day.
Tak tahan tengok dia menangis. Mama pun sebak sama.
And another round of urine test.
Oh, this time I'm alone.
Lagi mencabar.

Her blood test result still NG.
Her white blood reading reducing but still far from target.
From 28 drop to 22, slow progress. Not as expected.
Her fever still on & off.
So doctor increase antibiotic dose.
Her bacteria growth test result came out on Thursday morning.
She was infected with bacteria called e.coli.
And by right one day after increase dose of antibiotic, doctor told me if no fever in one day, we could go home.
BUT when doctor checked on evening, her body temperature increase back.
Doctor unsure why because he is paediatric so he told me he will refer to expertise on kidney related area.
And of course cannot go back, the dose of antibiotic also will increase.
On the Friday morning, after discuss with related doctor, doctor told me to monitor another one day.
My girl also start showing improvement.
No fever on Saturday so Sunday morning dah boleh keluar.
Alhamdulillah...

Seminggu berkampung di hospital, selain dari masa arwah mak sakit dulu, inilah pertama kali berkampung untuk anak.
Tipulah kalau saya kata saya masih lagi positive after doctor told me Lutfiah had e.coli infection & after antibiotic dose increase she still have fever.
Duduk muhasabah diri. Mungkin ada lagi perkara yang saya terlepas pandang.
Dah lama tak mengalirkan airmata di depan-Nya.
Mungkin selama ini saya sudah terlalu selesa dengan nikmat yang Allah beri.
Ya, kesihatan yang baik juga salah satu rezeki yang Allah kurniakan.
Berjuta wang ringgit pun tidak mampu beli kesihatan yang baik.
Terima kasih Ya Allah bagi saya alarm supaya saya terus beringat.
Tak perlu diulang - bukan mudah nak istiqamah, iman pun ada turun naik.
Keep reminding myself :)
